Average retail gasoline prices in Atlanta fell 6.2 cents per gallon last week, averaging $3.86/g Sunday, according to gasoline price website AtlantaGasPrices.com.
The national average increased 1.3 cents per gallon last week to $3.81/g.
Including the change in gas prices in Atlanta during the past week, prices Sunday were 31.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 25.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 14.6 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 14.9 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"Even with Isaac long gone, the oil industry is still bringing capacity back online- at refineries and oil rigs, which is keeping pressure on prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Supply remains tight across the country as we slowly approach the transition to winter-spec gasoline, but I continue to be firm in believing that the national average will start to decline towards the end of September, as is typically the case."
